    What he did: Crawford developed nicely as the season wore on. He was active for every game but did not record a start. He finished with 33 tackles (18 solo) and five quarterback pressures. He was not able to get to the quarterback as much, but the Cowboys liked his build for the 3-4 and position flexibility at 6-4, 285 pounds. He also saw work on special teams on the kick return unit. The coaches lauded his work ethic and saw a player become more technically sound as the year went on,

    Where he fits in the future: It's possible he could be a starting strong side defensive end, especially if Anthony Spencer is not re-signed as a free agent. He has the ability to hold up against the run and also get up the field to provide some pass rush push. Monte Kiffin's strong-side ends during his time in Tampa Bay, like a Greg Spires, were often underrated and benefited from the attention given to other players up front.
